During our latest update on Sunny 101.9, UPHP Clinical Coordinator, Erin Potter, joined Mark and Walt in the Morning to discuss the importance of good oral health.

Potter is a registered dental hygienist, and explained why oral health so important and how people can maintain or improve it. She said the four main ways are good oral hygiene at home, a tooth-healthy diet, not using tobacco products, and regular dental checkups.

She also shared that regular cleanings and exams are important for both oral and overall health, so being seen regularly by a dental professional is an important part of health care.
